Effective Recruiting: Using Location Ties to Source Candidates

Posted by Doximity TF Team

Convincing a doctor to move – whether it’s for a locum tenens position or an opportunity for the doctor to settle down – is easier if your candidate has a personal connection or local tie to your community or state. Did the physician candidate (or their spouse or partner) get their undergraduate degree at a local University? Maybe he or she attended medical school or completed their residency training there? Was the candidate – or their spouse – born there? Perhaps they have family or close friends who live nearby. Candidates are often willing, eager even, to go back to their roots.

Posted by Doximity TF Team

Why a decrease in physician burnout means higher retention and lower turnover

Posted by Doximity TF Team

Nearly 40% of physicians today say that they would not choose to enter the medical profession if given the opportunity to do it all over. That’s up from 1973, when fewer than 15% of physicians reported any doubts about career choices. Physician burnout rates are now twice as high in medicine as in other fields – even after adjustment for factors such as age, level of education, and hours worked in the past week (per the 2018 Medscape National Physician Burnout & Depression Report).

Technology Challenges Doctors of All Ages: Here’s What Recruiters Can Do (Part 2)

Posted by Doximity TF Team

In an earlier article we pointed out that technology can challenge doctors of all ages. What’s important to note, though, is technology that’s challenging to one doctor (think fax machines) may not challenge another (think EHRs) – largely because undeniable differences increase the gap between doctors of different ages. We’ve always believed that understanding generational differences can drastically change your recruitment strategy, and this is especially true when it comes to technology.

Technology Challenges Doctors of All Ages: Here’s What Recruiters Can Do

Posted by Doximity TF Team

Technology from telehealth services to wearable medical devices has been a driving force in healthcare for decades. Doctors are overwhelmingly early tech adopters (think Apple Watch), yet we hear a lot of complaints about technology in healthcare: younger doctors are frustrated because they’re forced to use ancient technologies in the workplace (think fax machines), still others are challenged by digital health/medical records (EHRs or EMRs).

7 Ways to Minimize Radio Silence with Physician Candidates

Posted by Doximity TF Team

It happens all the time in the physician recruitment game: you reach out to a candidate who simply never responds.

When a candidate goes dark it adds more stress to your job, but there are a few things you can do to minimize radio silence.
